    Step by Step Guide - How to Get Pregnant Fast

    • 4.8   (24 Votes)

    If you are thinking that how to get pregnant fast, then these 4 steps will help you to get pregnant fast. Stop usage of birth control when your fertility period arrives. Track ovulation with cervical mucus, BBT, and cervical position. A couple needs to plan sex well in advance and start a healthy lifestyle.

    You may be among those couples, who might be trying to have a baby for some time now. If yes, then we bring you the perfect steps you can follow to conceive fast. It’s important to understand that all couples are different and need a different approach when dealing with their fertility issues. The moment you decide to have a baby, you start searching for the ways to get the good news at the earliest. (4) However, only having unprotected sex does not work every time and one needs to focus on important factors around it. No matter if you have already tried a couple of times or a new bee, we bring you a step-by-step guide of how to become pregnant faster, which is based on years of academic and medical research (1) (2) (3)

    Step 1- Put a stop to your Birth Control ahead of time

    It is pretty obvious that you need to stop using birth control methods especially the pill when you are planning for a baby. However, it is not a stop and goes affair and a woman needs some amount of time to return to her fertility after putting off birth control. But again, this is not true in the case of barrier birth control methods such as condoms, non-hormonal IUD (Intrauterine Device), etc. With hormonal methods such as birth control pills, hormonal IUDs, Birth Control Implants, etc., the problem with conceiving as soon you are of them is a bit tougher. This is due to the fact that during birth control usage, a woman’s body sees a lot of hormonal surges, which needs to be adjusted once she is off that. (5) (6)

    Birth Control

    However, the issue with delayed conception with hormonal birth control methods is not true for all the category of birth control methods. If you are on contraceptives, you must know that they come under the category of combination and progestin methods. The good thing about progestin-only methods such as Mirena IUD or Mini-pills is that you may still ovulate even with these methods on. However, with combined methods such as Nexplanon or Nuvaring, you may face issues with menstrual periods even after you are off to these methods.

    Step 2- Track your Ovulation

    Knowing what is ovulation and how it is one of the key factors to get pregnant fast is one of the most important things when you are trying for a baby. However, tracking ovulation is a tricky task and needs disciplined tracking. So, those who don’t understand how ovulation works, ovulation is a biological event, normally taking place every month where one of your ovaries releases one mature egg to the fallopian tube to get fertilized. If a healthy and motile sperm comes in contact with this mature egg, fertilization takes place and pregnancy happens. However, ignore the myths around ovulation that it occurs on the 14th day of your cycle or you can get pregnant after ovulation, etc. (7) Normally, every woman has a different cycle and depending on her body, hormones and stability/variation in her menstruation cycles. Date of ovulation varies from woman to woman and it is almost impossible to conceive after ovulation phase is gone. However, knowing this won’t be sufficient and you got to learn how to track your ovulation. Tracking your ovulation needs a lot of vigilance from your side such as tracking your cervical mucus*, BBT (Basal Body Temperature)*, Cervix position*, etc. Although these are natural methods they are as efficient as tracking ovulation through technical methods such as BBT thermometer, Ovulation Strips or Ovulation Calculator, etc. Some Facts on Ovulation are as follows:

    a- Cervical mucus* is your vaginal fluid/discharge. During Ovulation it is sticky, transparent and looks like raw egg white.

    b- BBT (Basal Body Temperature)* is the lowest body temperature. When you are ovulating, your BBT is maximum and drops as soon as ovulation phase is over.

    c- Cervix position* During Ovulation, your cervix will be soft, high, open and wet.

    d- Probability of ovulation is high during the first 3 days before ovulation, medium during the ovulation day and 4 days before ovulation and low after ovulation phase is over or 6-7 days before ovulation.

    Step 3- Plan your sex ahead

    It may sound weird, but planning your intimate time ahead is one of the key factors in how to get pregnant fast. Plan your sex time for ovulation. We understand that when you are planning for a baby, there is much incentive to hit the bedroom all the time. However, don’t over-consume your partner’s sperm. Because if your partner does not have enough sperm or low sperm count, over consuming will let his old sperm flow which might not be very efficient. Most importantly, hitting the bed during the fertile period is very important. Normally 30% of couples at the peak of their fertility have the chance to get pregnant during their first year only. (8)

    Plan your sex

    However, if you are aging (i.e. 35+), you might not have chances to conceive fast even if you plan ahead with sex during ovulation period. In such cases, it is always suggested to go for an AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone Test), Sperm Count Analysis, Sperm Morphology Test, Complete Pelvic Examination, etc. 

    Step 4- Eat healthily and keep track of your lifestyle

    Worshipping your body internally is the key to have a balanced life and answer to how to get pregnant fast. Planning your pregnancy ahead is the best thing to do and you need to stock up your body with essential vitamins and minerals from a long time before. Also, good dietary habits work well for the hormones to regulate on time and helping you to get pregnant faster. (9) (10)

    Eat healthy

    Some of the health tips which we have outlined for you to get pregnant fast are-

    a- Visit your Doctor/Medical Professional regularly

    b- Exercise is the key. However, too much of gymming session might not be very effective.

    c- Cut back on Caffeine and Nicotine.

    d- Avoid processed and junk food.

    e- Eat green vegetables, pulpy fruits enriched with Vitamins.

    f- Start your prenatal vitamins
